BAFS Friends Dinner
In collaboration with #RemoteForensicCSI, and to support remote teaching resources for students, The Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences will be holding a series of student focused monthly webinars.
The Society’s Research Seminar Series aims to provide timely opportunities for practitioners, educators and researchers working in criminal justice contexts to come together, learn from and interact with authors of recently published Science & Justice journal articles.
Each online seminar will last approximately one hour, where two or three speakers will summarise their publication and give live attendees the opportunity to ask questions about their work. Seminar presentations are intended for diverse audiences and it is hoped that these events will further enhance continual professional development, initiate new research and facilitate the implementation of innovative methods, or changes in policy and practice.
